  • From Calcutta to the snows of the Himalayas, Patrick French's Younghusband: The Last Great Imperial Adventurer pieces together the story of a man who embodies all the romance and folly of Britain's lost imperial dream. Soldier, explorer, mystic, guru and spy, Francis Younghusband began his colonial career as a military adventurer and became a radical visionary who preached free love to his followers. Patrick French's award-winning biography traces the unpredictable life of the maverick with the 'damned rum name', who singlehandedly led the 1904 British invasion of Tibet, discovered a new route from China to India, organized the first expeditions up Mount Everest and attempted to start a new world religion. 'A story full of excitement and insight, humour and curiosity'
  •   Michael Holroyd 'Breathtakingly accomplished'
  •   Observer 'Beautifully written, wise, balanced, fair, funny and above all extremely original'
  •   William Dalrymple 'Dazzling'
  •   Niall Ferguson 'I found myself reading through the night. This is a rare gem of a book, one which so perfectly combines author and subject that it must set new standards for the future of historical biography'
